ANRW 2024 : Applied Networking Research Workshop 2024
Call For Papers
The ACM/IRTF Applied Networking Research Workshop 2024 (ANRW’24), co-located with IETF-120, is the ninth edition of an academic workshop that provides a forum for researchers, vendors, network operators, and the Internet standards community to present and discuss emerging results in applied networking research.
The workshop combines presentations of new research in the form of short papers and lightning papers. ANRW’24 accepts the following types of submissions:
-- Short papers are publications that present new research that has not been previously published. For a short paper to be considered for publication, please submit work describing early/emerging results in a relevant topic area. Position papers are also welcome. There is a 6-page limit for short papers, including figures, tables, and any appendices, optionally followed by unlimited additional pages for references.
-- Lightning papers can provide a summary of early, emerging, or on-going work as well as short updates of previously published work. Position papers are also welcome. This type of submission will be presented in a short, lightning-talk style. For a lightning paper to be considered for presentation, please submit an extended abstract that is no longer than 2 pages, with a maximum of one additional page for references only.
Paper topics are not restricted to current standardization activities of related IETF working groups or activity in related IRTF research groups. We welcome papers on topics the IETF/IRTF should be looking at.
We note that the structure and use of the Internet, and Internet services, are constantly evolving. The list is long, including but not limited to shifts in traffic patterns and demands with remote work over broadband access networks, operational responses to large-scale physical and socio-political events, also trends towards increased multiplexing of connections over fewer IP addresses for various reasons that include scale, adaptability, and privacy.
-- Development and deployment experience of new or enhanced Internet protocols (e.g., for transport, security, or routing).
-- Improvements, measurements, and analysis of the security and privacy of new and existing Internet protocols and privacy enhancing technologies.
-- Evolution of interconnection, and new approaches on network management, operations, and control.
-- Practical congestion control for heterogeneous networks and novel applications.
-- Better ways of specifying protocols, including usable techniques for protocol verification.
-- Interactions between CDNs, anycast, and edge services such as DNS and Firewalls.
-- Research and analysis of consolidation and centralization of the Internet.
-- Techniques for logging/monitoring of Internet traffic and root-cause analysis, as well as debugging of (encrypted) Internet protocols.
-- Measurement and analysis of the performance of networks, including the performance or quality of experience of networked applications.
-- Design, measurement, analysis, or deployment of wireless, mobile, and cellular networks.
-- Internet resilience and recovery in physically challenging environments and events (e.g., remote areas, natural disaster situations).
-- Approaches and efforts towards decentralizing and democratizing the Internet.
-- Understanding the impact and interoperability of diverse clients (e.g., IoT, robotics, manufacturing).
-- The changing semantics of IP addresses and connection-level metadata at large-scale (e.g. Addressing Agility, Private Relay).
-- Formal verification of protocols.
-- Topics relevant to the standardization activities of related IETF working groups.
-- Topics relevant to activity in related IRTF research groups.
ANRW’24 particularly encourages the submission of results that could form the basis for future engineering work in the IETF, by, for example providing input and analysis on Internet protocols or operational Internet practices, as well as influence further research and experimentation in the IRTF.
ANRW’24 will be a hybrid event. Remote participation options will be available; please contact the chairs if you intend to submit work but know in advance that you will not be able to present the work in-person at the workshop.
